“Fully fitted kitchen units is the way to make money. They are easy to make if you have a machine and fitting them is a doddle.’

“I can help you to set it up if you are serious about doing it.’

“Yes I am, but I will need a fair bit of capital to begin with.’

“You could get a loan from the bank and pay them back once you have got the business up and running.’

“You make it sound so uncomplicated.’

First you need to find a suitable premises which I can do for you, you could rent the place to begin with and then buy it when you have enough capital.

“How long do you think it would take me if I started right away?’

“In three years you could have a thriving business.’

“Is that all?’ I thought it would take far longer.’

“It could be sooner if you put the time in.’

“Alright let’s do it Emma, You will come and be my business partner won’t you?’

“Emma laughed and said I guess I will.’

“What name are you going to launch the business under?’

“I don’t know, how about “Crafty Kitchen’s”?’

“No it sounds too tacky. How about… “Kitchen Craft” it sounds better and classier.’


Now location is all important, I have seen a few shops near the university that have been empty for a while. We may get one of them cheap. Leave it to me and I will negotiate a good deal.’

 “Since we are going to be partners I guess we ought to have a drink to celebrate. Would you like to come out with me for dinner tomorrow?’

“They say never mix business with pleasure but I think we can do dinner.’

“Harry found out that Emma was from York which wasn’t too far away.’ She was two years into her degree and said that she could finish that and still be able to help run the books, ordering and deal with on line customers.’

“How many kitchens could you fit in one day Harry?’

“I would say starting at say eight until five each day maybe four or five.’

“You need to start at six thirty so you can load the van up then get to the job ready to start at eight.

Harry you also have to allow enough time to get back to the shop restock the units and then fit them.’

I know someone who is also serving his time at the same place as me he could be making the units as I am fitting them we should make enough money to be able to pay him a decent wage.’
